My name is Don & I'm located on the West Coast of Wales above the Coastal Village of Aberporth in the County of Ceredigion (Flag above). My QTH is situated at around 680ft (207mtrs) above sea level and overlooking the Irish Sea. I have been Fully Licenced Since 1989. I was a very Active HF & VHF DX'er in the 1990's and have worked the World. I have operated as VE3/GW0PLP/P  -  GM0PLP/P  - (Isle's of Mull, Arran, Bute & Skye) EI/GW0PLP/P (Valentia Island on 6mtrs IO41).  I was inactive between  2001 - 2015 except for SWL. In  November (2015) I regained my interest in the hobby.

I was born on the South Coast of England but have Celtic roots, my mother being English & my Father Scottish. I have lived & worked in Wales since I left the Fishing Industry in 1981. I am Welsh at heart now and would live nowhere else. Both my children are Welsh speaking and Four of my grandchildren are fluent in the Welsh Language.

My Radio set up is Simple and Modest but works very well from this QTH. I have a good Sea Path across to Ireland and North America. I enjoy the challenge and specialize in weak signal DX contacts. Mainly on 17,12, 144mhz SSB & 6 mtrs. I don't collect QSL cards anymore but I appreciate your contact. I am an Independent  Radio Amateur & do not get involved with Clubs or National Radio Societies.

DO NOT Send me Cards to the QSL Bureau. I am not a member.
